Ripe berry, rich fruitcake flavours and soft, velvety tannins. French and American oak impart dark chocolate, coffee bean and vanilla characters.Download Full Winemaker Note
Very rich dark brick red with opulent violet ruby hues.
A complex bouquet of plums, black olives, spice and blackberry, are intertwined with French oak characters
of cedar and cashew nut.
The palate exhibits ripe berry, fruitcake and cinnamon flavours with earthy, mocha complexities. The wine has incredible mid-palate richness and length with silky, velvety tannins. Quality tight-grained French oak gives a lingering smoky, toasty, cigar box finish.
Will continue to improve until at least 2006-2010.
